Shopping Haul

I love this good old standby layout because it allows me to add sooooo much more.  ha ha ha!  I've used papers from LemonCraft called "Violet Silence", which are so pretty with it's purples and pinks.  I added Joy's ornamental die, some fun pink pom pom lace and gorgeous "Flower Rhinestone" pearl lace.

WHAT GIRL DOESN'T LIKE A LITTLE SHOPPING?!!  And I'm sure even I have had a need for a trolley on occasion.  LOL!!  This image is so cute from LDRS Polkadoodles:


I snuck a few lace paper doily's under a few layers and added some flowers from the shop including a cream colored fruit stamen.  Oh and also layered in a Joycraft lace burlap heart and on top a very cute vintage acrylic postage stamp.

Some more goodies from the store using some pearl pink sprays, lilac colored foam spirals (there are an assortment of colors they come in), a seam binding bow, a very pretty "Alexis" button AND SOME PINK BON BONS!  One day I'm going to think that no card can be without a bon bon.  LOL!

Please email Tracy if you are looking for something here that's not in the store.  

Thanks so much and have a great week!

Just Denim

Good Morning,

Well I think we have had our summer weather now, it was nice & warm for a couple of days and now we are back to cloudy & chilly. Oh I do love the british weather :-)

I have had the Maja Designs Denim and Friends paper pad for ages, like most of my paper pads I hate to use them cos they are all so nice. I took a deep breath though & got to cutting lol

I have cut out 4 of the photos in the pack and have layered them on top of each other with some natural sisal underneath. I have just checked the shop & all of the Denim and Friends papers are on SALE yippee

Thank you for stopping by & make sure you pop back tomorrow to see some more fab inspiration from the team.

Simple open flowers TUTORIAL

Hello everyone!

It's time for a tutorial in Noor Design U.K.  today and I'm going to show you how to make this open flower which you can use in your scrapbook projects. 

You'll need:
  •  2 strips of foamiran (I chose mint and brown)
  • Rosy Owl Rose dies AC1, second large die
  • Cutting and embossing machine
  • black pen 
  • an iron
  • a glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • scissors
  • a flower making tool set (the biggest ball) and
  • a soft pad (could be a kitchen sponge).

First, cut just one layer out of your chosen foamiran strip. Second, heat each individual petal as I have shown 

and push it with the flower making tool like this:

Repeat this process with each petal to gain this shape:

Fold the whole petal layer and roll it between your fingers.

After that, restore the shape of the flower by gentle stretching each of the petals. 

Roll the edge of each petal backwards.

Now it's time to create the centrepiece of the flower. Cut a strip 15 cm long and 0.5 cm wide out of brown foamiran.

Cut the strip into short slits, roll it and glue it with a hot glue gun.

Carefully press the bundle of foamiran to the preheated surface of the iron for a few seconds. Pull the stamens off and dishevel it. Repeat everything again until achieving this shape:

Draw some dots in the centre of the flower as I have shown here:

Attach the stamens in the middle of the flower by pressing it on the sponge.


If you repeat all those steps with a smaller petal you'll have another gorgeous flower as well:

Thank you for stopping by!
Wishing you a wonderful week!
